Luke Bryan Says Idol Putting Strain on Family
Luke Bryan is enjoying the beginning of his run as a judge on the upcoming season of American Idol. Despite all his responsibilities including tour headliner, recording artist, songwriter, and last but not least, husband and father, Luke is making the time for Idol, but he admits it doesn’t come without a few personal drawbacks.
“When you look at American Idol, you know, sitting down with my wife and talking it out, and even yesterday I was sitting around the island in our kitchen and I asked the boys were they happy with me, and I apologized to them for being gone. I mean, I’m really telling them I’m sorry I’m being gone but then I try to explain to them why I am gone so much and what’s on my brain, why Daddy chooses to be so busy now so maybe I won’t be so busy later. You know, with Idol it is a strain. It’s a strain on our family unit but the way you get through it is you communicate.”
The new season of American Idol debuts on ABC in January.
